Morning Singer Totem Face with Deb Hart - PCA 2018

Part of Polymer Clay Adventure 2018

Ever wonder what to do with all the canes you create from the various classes you take. The Morning Singer Kachinas wake the Native American people on days of celebration by singing in pairs from the rooftops. They leads the people and other Kachinas in song.

You will learn to lay out a design with canes, create and inlay a turquoise background, and finish the design with fun added pre-cured details and antiquing. The skills taught in this class are a great addition to anyone who is growing their new skills in polymer clay millefiori design.

Art has been part of Deb Hart's soul since her first memories. Creativity is a vital part of a balanced life and in creating and teaching she incorporates math and chemistry - her education - with her personal history. Inspired by M.C. Escher, Van Gogh, and Native American culture, one can see their influence in her work. Her discovery of polymer clay caning came in the 90s when she saw a bracelet in a catalog and decided her first project in polymer clay should be a face cane. She's been hooked on polymer clay ever since.

Deb's love of polymer clay caning has lead to teaching online and in live workshops. She approaches caning much the same as her other art or scientific experiments; carefully laying out a plan before she starts. She starts with a sketch on gridded graph paper. From that sketch, she can determine the amount of materials she will need and how to vary the size of the cane from the sketch - which is vital in creating advanced image oriented canes. Deb then uses her canes to make images in jewelry - often using several canes to complete a design.

Deb is a Minnesota farm girl with degrees in Chemistry and Psychology from St. Olaf College. She started down her creative path working as the photo editor for her high school and college yearbooks. She has organized arts & craft groups for over 15 years and taught painting, jewelry, and polymer clay privately and at Michaels stores. Her artwork has been featured in San Antonio Art League's juried shows, The Best of College Photography, Polymer Cafe, Polymer Journeys, The Polymer Arts, and numerous blogs, including Polymer Clay Daily.
